Skolelinux/debian-edu is based heavily on Debian.

So generallty, when trying some hardware with Skolelinux/Debian-edu, a 
good approach is to first test with vanilla Debian.

Similarly, when searching for info on hardware working or not with 
Skolelinux/Debian-edu, here's a few good places to look (prioritized):

  1. http://wiki.debian.org/ (search titles for yourhardware)

  2. http://wiki.debian.org/ (search content/text for yourhardware)

  3. Google (search for "yourhardware site:debian.org")

  4. Google (search for "debian yourhardware)

  5. Google (search for "linux yourhardware)

Specifically, first search above for eee revealed 157 pages about the 
eeepc, most prominently this one: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC 
mentioning kernel bugs fixed in october this year, which indicates only 
newest kernels are good for this machine: Current releases of 
Skolelinux/Debian-edu most probably won't work out-of-the-box with this 

Hope tht helps - also others considering _other_ hardware than this.
